forward and he's allowed the u.n. security council, russia and china to determine our policy. all these are acts of weaknesses as opposed to making clear and we haven't worked closely with our allies as evidence by the recent u.n. meeting when the president had time for whoopi goldberg but couldn't meet with netanyahu. >> one of the criticisms, this appears to be management of the arab spring. that is a big part. does governor romney think it was a mistake to push mubarak out? >> what he has said is that we have forces that are of extre extremism and forces of moderation an we should be aligned and help those forces. a difference in egypt is one that's on the table today. governor romney says we should have conditions. we shouldn't write off a billion dollar debt. >> but going back to mubarak. was that a mistake? does governor romney believe that's a mistake? >> how it was handled was a mistake. >> pushing mubarak out was a mistake? >> let me give you the answer. first of all, for two years, president obama cut support of u.s. assistance for democracy and civil society in egypt, s
. they are underconstruction now. across the street from dolby, the large and long inactive federal building on the u.n. plaza is undergoing renovation and will be opened next year, bringing 600 jobs to the area. proving that central market can be a place to live, to work and to play. i recently helped to break ground for a new housing development at 55 9th street, literally right behind the dolby building. avalon bay will construct 273 units providing needed housing for people who want to live in a vibrant and active neighborhood. this part of central market is also seeing many of the existing small businesses flourish. jeannie kim of sam's diners is here with us today and she has been serving home cooking food on central market for over 30 years. the buzz in the neighborhood inspired jeannie to give her restaurant a facelift on our own dime and introduced newcomers to the neighborhood staple. jeannie is here today and stand up, jeannie. i want to thank you and everybody take a trip to sam's diner on markets street. [ applause ] and down the street from sam's is phillip's marvelous coffee shop. it's a mecca
. the u.n. has declared 2012 the international year of the cooperative because of their proven ability to give every day people control over their economic destiny. we have a vibrant co-op seen -- scene in the bay area. san francisco can do more to support them through the cooperative model. the main reason we're here today is because this new economic mode calls for new policies. i encourage you to check out policies for a shareable city to see the implications policy was for this new economy coming in with different services. some things we covered our house parking and zoning regulations do not really account for car sharing and parking sharing. hotel regulations are outmoded for new businesses. food and restaurant regulation does not fully accommodate the amazing food sharing in san francisco. we believe it would be a mistake to hastily applied 20th- century relations to new 21st century -- to the new 21st century economy. as the mayor said, new research and dialogue are needed. that is why the sharing economy working group and the panel today make so much sense. i want to add one
there was no understanding or no agreement from the u.n. that diplomacy was given some time to work. >> it's great we got multilateral sanctions through the u.n. security council. unfortunately the price we paid for getting china and russia to buy into the sanctions was that the central bank sanctions would not be included. everyone agrees across the political divide in the united states who follow the issue closely that the central bank sanctions are the ones that had the real bite. the administration resisted efforts in congress repeatedly to get sanctions in place. you can cite, as they often do the economic implications. it's not clear to me why there were economic implications in 2009-2010 but not in # 2011-2012 but they said it would under mine the diplomatic strategy reaching out to the ayotollah, unconditionally trying to get unconditional talks. they were silent when there was a genuine protest movement in iran that would have put political pressure on the regime. all the moments whether it was economic or political pressure in 2009 and 2010 the administration did nothing because they believed t
and mouse game. >>guest: it is. we had prime minister binyamin netanyahu go to the u.n. and he made his case at the u.n. for not letting this happen, his case to the global community and now we see iran, whether they are trying to assert how close israel might be to a strike or picking out targets they may want to hit in retaliation, but one thing that is important for people to realize, drones can be used for surveillance but they can be used to deliver weapons. there is a reason that israelis have gas masks that are handed out to the citizens. this is a real concern about that and we know syria has chemical weapons available. therefore it is likely they could end up in iranians hands and end up with hezbollah. >>shepard: the bigger concern going on what is -- going on in syria, that could throw things off. >>guest: certainly a ways that the iranian would like to divert attention about being the west against iran, is to make it islam against the little satan and the great satan, israel and the united states and turn this into a religious conflict globally. that is something we have to keep
the iranians were here for the u.n. general assembly, they were dropping broad hints they were ready to make a nuclear deal after the election. take that with a grain of salt because the spreek leaders, the guy who makes the -- supreme leaders, the guy who makes the decisions this week were watching the iranian economy collapse so a deal may be imminent. chris: good news for everybody. when we come back, the big question of the week, who do you pick to win the vice-presidential debate this thursday be right back. >> "the chris matthews show" is brought to you by charles schwab. let's talk about the personal attention you and have you heard of the new dialing procedure for the 408 and 669 area codes? no, what is it? starting october 20, 2012, if you have a 408 or 669 number, you'll need to dial 1 plus the area code plus the phone number for all calls. o.k., but what if i have an 408 number and i'm calling a 408 number? you'll still need to dial 1 plus the area code plus the phone number. so when in doubt, dial it out! chris: welcome back. vice president joe biden, u.s. congressman paul ryan h
good at the time, i guess. a guy who was our u.n. correspondent had applied for a job that cbs. they looked at the broadcast and called me. i called a couple of people i knew at cbs. one person who i met covering the middle east -- i asked him, should i do a? i called jack chancellor at nbc. i said, jack, should i do it? he said yes. it is a hell of a lot better than nbc. jack was a great guy. if you ask what changed my life, that moment, it certainly was that. >> i have a review of douglas brinkley's book on walter cronkite in sunday's "washington post," september 9, 2012, written by robert macneil. another canadian? >> canadian. >> you are still a canadian? >> i am dual citizenship. >> his first paragraph -- for anybody interested in the evolution of broadcasting, this is a tremendous read. tv journalism's most tremendous phenomenon, walter. do you agree? >> absolutely. walter got very tired of being described as the most trusted man in america. he knew he should not be. i say that with affection. but walter exuded accuracy, decency, fairness, and i think that this resonated
. what is the worse thing is five days later, sending our u.n. ambassador at every news outlet saying this was a hateful video that caused a spontaneous demonstration. that is outrageous. >> reporter: with four weeks left, one campaign is trying to keep building its momentum while another is trying to rebuild. >> reporter: there are two more debates and the next will be a presidential debate on thursday and taking place in danville, kentucky. >>> longtime virginia cool persian virgil good is hoping to shake up the presidential race. he's running as the constitution party candidate and served in virginia state legislature and congress as a democrat, republican, and independent. he is an eccentric former gop congressman who would throw a wrench in mitt romney's campaign stealing votes away in the battleground states. >> i have advocated and near complete moratorium on green cards and tell unployment is 95%. >> he raised mere pennies compared to the millions by both candidates, but his small group of supporters are strong. he is on the ballot in about 30 states, a write-in in others. fo
that wasn't true. they perpetuated that lie in the u.n. when our u.n. ambassador said it was because of a youtube video, she knew better, and the president certainly did. the truth does come out. the cover-up is sometimes worse than the crime, but not in this instance when an ambassador is dead and three other americans as well. megyn: hindsight is 2020. he looked back with our ambassador dead and three others dead, we can see that security was not adequate in benghazi. but it is disturbing to hear about this according to colonel wood, that not only are we going to reduce what we have in place. >> you know, there are a couple of observations that i have to make. just three weeks ago, this happened. certainly, this serviceman has the right to speak out about what he knows. but it passes as strange to me that right now, efforts being made to buy these folks and bring them to justice, it may be disinformation. i know that brad will find this shocking, this information may assist in the effort. we do not know. wait a second, brad, to rush to judgment on this, simply because it is four we
speaks, the ambassador will speak to us. former ambassador to the u.n. and advisor to the romney campaign. so he's going -- i know i read some excerpts. he's delivering the speech right now. we haven't heard what he's actually saying at the moment but in reading some of the excerpts, i know he will be -- he will say the u.s. should be more assertive i guess in the syrian conflict. what should we be doing that we're not doing with regard to syria? >> well i think governor romney points out that the policy that the obama administration has followed the past 18 months has been a failure. the conflict continues. we relied on russia to help us find a way to ease the dictatorship out of power. that was never going to work. as a consequence with russia and iran still supporting assad, we have had this on going battle with probably over 20,000 civilians killed. what governor romney recommends in the speech -- in the speech is that we carefully select leaders in the opposition who we can trust and see if it is possible to support them. connell: but getting involved ourselves is not realistic, is i
the president has failed. what should be a negotiation has devolved into heated his disputes in the u.n. only a new president brings the chance to begin anew. >> a new president who said i might not do anything differently. what do you make of this? >> i'm in greet with secret romney. >> on some things uh i would hope. >> it's a hard problem. how many problems have tried to solve it? everyone since cart. no one has managed. i assume the next president whether it's barack obama again or mitt romney is probably not going to do it. this is the thing to do in speeches. we talk like we are the world's parent. the left says if we want china to say go for it on global warming or pull back on military expansionism we need to set an example. they will follow us. the republican version of this is the mean dad, right? we're going in there and we'll tell them they're grounded until they fix it. both are silly. we obviously have a strong leadership role but they are not looking at us for how to act. there is a limited amount of going out and being a shining star to the world with achieve. everyone has to
'll have to continue to watch it. >> thank you. it will be exciting at the u.n. you know that. >>> i want to take you now to the syrian, turkish border. this has been a mess lately. artillery fire has been flying over the border and it started concerns that the cross border dispute could be a big, large regional battle. ivan watson's on the ground there. >> reporter: turkish and syrian artillery have now exchanged fire across the border for a sixth straight day. the turks are making it very clear that any time any gunfire or cannons or mortars fire into turkish territory from syria, they will respond immediately in kind. as far as the military alliance goes, last week, they held emergency talks declaring support for turkey when it first came under fire and also condemning syria for shooting into turkish territory, but up until now, no one has invoked article five of the charter. that considers attacks on one member of the alliance to be an attack on all of them and requires the entire alliance to come to the defense of the attacked party. >> all right. thank you very much. coming up next,
of israel. on this vital issue the president has failed and it has dissolve in the heated disfoots at the u.n. >> cenk: that's what he said in public. am i not merciful, fine, let's have two states. remember what he said in private. when meeting with fundraisers this is what he said about peace in the area. >> the palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish. >> cenk: so what he tells his donors behind the scenes, peace is unthinkable. we won't even bother trying. he's not even bothering thinking about it. watch this part of the donor meeting. >> on the other hand i got a call from a former secretary of state, and i won't mention which one it was but this individual said to me you know, i think there is a prospect for a settlement between the palestinians and the israelis after the palestinian election. i said, really? and you know, his answer was yes, i think there's such a prospect. i didn't delve into it. >> cenk: you didn't delve into it? if the secretary of state calls you and said i have the solution to
't bring back the four americans who were murdered. but the former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. john bolton says the state department has a chance to listen and learn and save lives in the future. >> the state department shouldn't wait for the conclusion of its own board, i think there ought to be an ongoing process now to try and enhance the security of diplomatic and other official personnel in the middle east and elsewhere. >> reporter: representatives from the bureau of diplomatic security and the state department are also expected to speak at wednesday's hearing. in washington, peter doocy, fox news. >>> sports is up next. unlikely hero emerges for the nats in their first playoff game in franchise history. scott smith is on deck. first, here's gary. >> real cold overnight. 30s. and tomorrow, unfortunately, a lot like today. we'll have your full forecast coming up in a bit when the news continues. stay with us. david smallwood: maryland money needs to stay in maryland. it's just that simple, i mean, it's a no brainer. anncr: every year marylanders spend five hundred and fifty... million
and arm syrian opposition groups so they can defend themselves. while a u.n. investigation found regime forces most likely responsible for the killings and said that rebel forces were also guilty of murder and torture and several radical islamic groups emerged in syria. president obama recently promised to send the syrian rebels another $45 million. the u.s. already shipped food, medicine and communications gear but no lethal weapons. some former military officials say it is time to do more. >> that does not mean the u.s. should put boots on the ground. but our leadership should be felt, it should be visible. >> reporter: now, by most estimates, the syrian regime has thousands of battle tanks and a regular supply of ammunition of iran to fight that kind of armament you're talking about giving the rebels things like shoulder-fired rockets and there is a concern that sending those types of weapons in could fall in to the hands of terrorists. that's the big difference with president obama's regime or his administration i should say. he's been advocating trying to keep it a low intensity co
be a negotiation process has devolved into a series of heated disputes at the u.n. in this old conflict as in every challenge we face in the middle east, only a new president will bring the chance to begin anew. there is a longing for american leadership in the middle east. it's not unique to that region. it's broadly felt by america's friends and allies in other parts of the world as well. in europe, where putin's russia casts a long shadow over young democracies and where our oldest allies have been told per pivoting away from them. in asia and across the pacific where china's assertiveness is sending chills throughout the region and in our hemisphere where neighbors in latin america want to resist hugo chavez, the castro brothers and deepen ties with the united states on trade, energy and security. but in all of these places just as in the middle east the question is asked, where does america stand. i know many americans are asking, why us? i know many americans are asking whether our country today with our ailing economy and massive debt and after 11 years of war is still capable of leading. i

. >> sreenivasan: the u.n. secretary-general, ban ki-moon, also weighed in. he warned today that the escalating conflict along the turkish-syrian border is "extremely dangerous." a commercial cargo ship was en route to the international space station today on track to arrive wednesday. the falcon rocket, with its unmanned dragon capsule, was launched last night from cape canaveral, florida. it's the first of 12 supply runs under a contract between the private firm space x and nasa. the capsule carries about a thousand pounds of experiments and other gear. the price of gas in california has hit another record high for the third day in a row, in the wake of a pipeline and refinery shutdown. people pumping gas across the state today paid an average $4.67 a gallon, the highest in the nation. and in parts of southern california, drivers at some stations are paying close to $6 a gallon. on sunday, governor jerry brown ordered the sale of winter-blend gas three weeks early to increase supplies. wall street started off the week on the losing side. the dow jones industrial average dropped 26 points to c

a president's administration that sends out a u.n. ambassador susan rice talking about a video, when you have a president that stands before the united nations, six times he referred to a video, never said anything about a terrorist attack. and we have the special forces lt. colonel that's come forward and we know now that security was denied 30 days out before that attack occurred. so, i don't think that they should be throwing around the word liar too often, but it's kind of like in a football game when you get taken out behind the wood shed and shellacked pretty bad, blaming the referees or blaming that the grass was too high or the other team cheated. you have to accept the fact that you got beat en. swacked, can you-- >> that's a sec football kind of word that you can use. stuart: all right, congressman. and i've got another topic for you, the vice-presidential debate is surely going to bring up medicare and paul ryan's reform plan. now you've got a florida district. how is medicare reform, the ryan plan, romney plan, how is it playing in your district? >> it's playing well because we ha
